A Little Touch of Christmas

I love the holidays! And when it is 100 degrees outside who wouldn't like a little blast of cold! :-) So to put myself in the snow boot frame of mind I decided to start on Christmas cards again. During the coming months I hope to do a few each month. Then when December rolls around I won't be frantically throwing things together. So bear with me as I share my creations. I do love Christmas and making cards makes me want to start singing! (Christmas carols of course...) I guess the stores won't be far behind with holiday music and decorations... Ok, that depressed me... Take a close look at the dress on this image. I tried the Copic Colorless Blending Solution Technique again. I love this! Hope you are having a wonderful week!
